AEM EndoShield™ Burn Protection System
The new AEM EndoShield™ Burn Protection System provides advanced
AEM monopolar energy with guaranteed elimination of stray energy
burns to patients, helping save lives every day.
Benefits: Every ninety minutes in the United States, a patient is severely
injured from a stray energy burn acquired during laparoscopic surgery.
These completely preventable burns kill 1-2 people per day. Encision’s
advanced AEM® monopolar energy eliminates these burns, caused by
insulation failure and capacitive coupling, saving patient’s lives every day.
What sets this product apart: The AEM EndoShield Burn Protection
System is the only way to deliver monopolar energy with guaranteed
elimination of stray energy burns. There is no other product on the market that eliminates the issue of stray energy from insulation failure and

MID Robotic Floshield
Robotic FloShield is a new standard in maintaining unparalleled visual
clarity during laparoscopic surgery. FloShield proactively protects the
laparoscope from condensation, debris and smoke. It is a sheath-based
system that fits over the DaVinci laparoscope. According to FloShield,
the device's unique design virtually eliminates the need to remove the
laparoscope for cleaning, minimizing surgical interruptions and saving
OR time. Features include:
• CO2 is diverted from the surgical insufflator to the tip of the laparo-
scope, creating a barrier of dry gas over the lens that shields it from
condensation, smoke and debris, keeping the lens consistently clear.
• If there is an abrupt loss of vision due to bleeding or rapid accumulation of debris, Flo-X in situ can be utilized.
• Flo-x in situ is the first biocompatible, alcohol-free surfactant
that flushes the lens intraoperatively without having
to remove the laparoscope from the patient.
• Proactively prevents the scope from becoming dirty.
• Provides time sensitive, controlled vision recovery
after an abrupt loss of vision in situ.

J-Plasma® is a transformational, helium-based,
gas plasma technology that offers remarkably low thermal spread and a high level of
precision with versatility across multiple
surgical specialties. J-Plasma® benefits
by producing an extremely low injury risk to surrounding tissue
from the minimized thermal spread, less smoke and no conductive
currents through the patient. J-Plasma® can provide efficiencies
like: reduced costs per case, streamlined inventory, fewer staffing
requirements, improved patient outcomes, reduced procedural time
and minimal capital investment.
